Wife has talked about getting another tattoo. She’s received a couple since we’ve been together, the first being the day before we got married, but I’m a little hesitant about the location she wants to have one placed.
You see, I’ve seen a lot of trashy people in the hospital where I’ve rotated through the most. Several women have tattoos of hearts, roses, etc. on various parts of their bodies – but the most trashy always had at least one on their ankle or breast (sometimes on both or multiple). I began to associate a tattoo around the ankle or breast as a sign of a white trash ho or a ghetto bitch, regardless of the level of class the person sporting the tattoo evoked.
Wife wants to get one on her ankle. I’ve told her my reason for not wanting her to get one there and she’s laughed at it. Apparently there are many women who get them on their ankles, but it still looks trashy to me. She’s also stated that I shouldn’t be one to talk since my tattoos are all of a rather trashy sort (I guess demons and skulls aren’t the most friendly looking) and I’m being a hypocrite.
Despite that rather sound argument, I've not received any since I was 18 and wouldn't get anything similar now. I've matured...a little.
Sigh…I just wish that she didn’t want to get one there. And if that’s how I think, Lord knows how others view them.
